2009 September Announcements
Dae Yen Sa International Buddhist Temple and Meditation Center
The Dharma School Series
Greetings to all Sangha members and extended friends. At our last meeting we had many good ideas as to topics that we might cover together in future. We will continue to remain mindful of these offerings to see how we might implement some and also continue our thoughts here. For the time being it seems beneficial to open a study on buddhist fundamentals. To facilitate our study we will be using a very good e-learning tool from buddhanet.net (http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/index.htm). Each week you will receive an email, like this, providing a topic and short summary of the teaching. Please refer to the links posted in these emails and print out these pages for your study and reference. We will make available 3 ring binders for easy organization as we continue our study together. Also to be clear, we will be continuing our format of Meditation, Dharma Talk and Sharing, Tea and Chanting. Namu, Eduardo
Chanting/Meditation 7 pm-7:30 pm
Dae Yen Sa Dharma School/Tea 7:30 pm -8:30 pm
We welcome individuals of all paths and understandings to participate in weekly gathering consisting of meditation, meditative reading and review along with group reflection on Buddhist principles and practices or Dharma. Reqirement - open minds and open hearts.
Study Topic for Wednesday 9/2/09: ---- FOUR NOBLE TRUTHSThe Four Noble Truths represent the very first sermon of the Buddha after he attained enlightenment. Paradoxically these fundamental teachings are simple and at the same time profound. They are teachings on both theory and practice. They are teachings on Suffering, the Cause of Suffering, The End to Suffering, and the Way to End Suffering.
Please print, "Buddhist teachings and practice paths"(http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/pathmaps.htm)This is a wonderful synopsis, in list form, to which we can refer.
For our study of the Four Noble Truths we will be accessing the home page(http://www.buddhanet.net/fundbud.htm) - may want to bookmarkand then click and print the link "Four Noble Truths 1"(http://www.buddhanet.net/fundbud4.htm).
Please read these commentaries and bring your insights, reflections and questions to Sangha.
It will be good to be with you again. As always the Temple and Sangha is open to all who come seeking freedom from greed, anger and ignorance through wisdom and peace.Consider inviting a "Buddha Buddy" to join you!
Thank you and Namu.
